Meet Dr Yao Teoh
BDSC (Hons) UQ – Dentist
Dr Yao Teoh, BDSC (Hons) UQ
I graduated with honours from the University of Queensland in 2014.
Following graduation, I worked briefly in full-time private practice but the desire to learn more and keeping up-to-date with the latest happenings in the dental world drew me back to the university as a post-graduate student.
I am currently researching a new dental bio-material that will hopefully improve the outcomes of root-canal therapy. I am also privileged to be involved in the training of future dentists at the university which is an activity I enjoy.
Despite the busy life as a student, I chose to maintain private practice because seeing patients is the highlight of my day and a chance for me to put the skills I have acquired to help someone. I believe dentistry is not just a trade but rather a relationship with a patient that extends far beyond teeth alone. I do enjoy getting to know someone which I feel is the only way to provide the best care possible. I am happy to answer any questions regarding your oral health needs, as I am a strong believer of preventative dentistry through education.
I enjoy all facets of dentistry but I regard prevention and endodontics, which is my field of research, as something close to my heart.
I aim to provide you with the care you need and I hope to meet you soon!
